State Recycling Compost

Robbing from the poor to sell to the poor?Robbing from the poor
to sell to the poor?


Richness is soil deep so we make every effort here at the HoBB Gardens to make it ever deeper by composting everything organic we can get our hands on. In one UK city however, the local authority encourages garden owners to give away their garden goodness then buy it back again.

I read an article about the Birmingham City Council (UK) who are discouraging the noble art of self-composting throughout the City by supporting a ‘garden waste’ scheme alongside their household waste collection.

The Council are saying, under the guise of ‘good environmental practice’, that householders should put all their garden cuttings, weeds etc. into specially provided green bags for Council collection. Of course, once the Council gets its hands on the nutrient-rich material, they simply compost it and offer it back for sale, probably to many of its original owners – pure genius at work or madness ? Both are supposed to be closely linked.

It can be easy to miss the plot as a consumer, but as a producer and profiteer the plot is very carefully scripted. ‘Value-added re-cycling’ can too easily become another way of selling consumables. If a manufacturer creates a product and/ or its ‘packaging’ specifically in a way that it can only be re-cycled at a further (designed) cost to the consumer then it makes a mockery of ‘re-cycling’.

Fancy breaking this encroaching circle? So do I.

Little Nemo 1911 to Finding Nemo now

Little Nemo 1911 to Finding Nemo nowSo in less than 100 years the animation film industry creates the quality of ‘Finding Nemo’.

What future the role of acting unless in voice over or motion capture form?

All budding actors selling the rights to their avatar selves in perpetuity, have one shot, one sale, one chance to negotiate their image rights – do not get it wrong. There’s a UK hoo-ha over the way bogus beings are assuming ID’s that are not theirs in order to fraudiently obtain goods and cash but what commotion will there be when all police have gene-scanners. Gene-scanners will be able to scan all litter to find out the phone number and address of the person who dropped it. Gene-scanners will be routinely used at the scene of all crimes to discover who was there. Gene-scanners will be available to all curious mates to find out who’s been ‘close’ to their loved ones.

How safe are your genes? Do you own the property rights to yourself?


At the moment, mobile G3 hand sets do not have gene-scanners fitted as standard but by the time G4 or G7 technology arrives, gene-scanners might be common. Can you imagine a paper-chase world where every bit of paper you drop has everybit of information about you upon it? Rather like the potential of a magnetic strip on a card but thousand-fold.

If it can be imagined, it can be created. That’s the way of the world because we are the result of our thoughts. Disney’s Imagineers are prime examples of the power of intent. The practical ones ‘follow’, so be careful what you think!
